Publisher's Summary

James S.A. Corey delivers compelling SF that ranks with the best in the field. In Leviathan Wakes, ice miner Jim Holden is making a haul from the rings of Saturn when he and his crew encounter an abandoned ship, the Scopuli. Uncovering a terrifying secret, Jim bears the weight of impending catastrophe. At the same time, a detective has been hired by well-heeled parents to find a missing girl, and the investigator’s search leads him right to the Scopuli.

    Story
    "Indescribable"

    My favorite authors Stephen King, James Lee Burke, and Kevin J Anderson. This book reads like it was a joint venture between the three. There are elements of a space opera, some pretty gnarly horror, and a solid anti-hero detective.

    I loved it. I would highly suggest for you if interested in any of the above genres.

    I look forward to more works from this author.

    "Good listen"

    I found the story to be a little slow at times but overall enjoyed the listen.

    Book 2 was even better. Turned out I listened in the wrong order.

    "good mix of hard scifi/space opera"

    narrator did a good job conveying the emotions and individuality of the different characters. Loved the hard scifi elements and space opera adventure structure of the book.

    "Edge-of-your seat action"
    Any additional comments?

    Fast-paced mystery / thriller that drops a washed-up detective and the hapless XO of an ice freighter in the middle of an interplanetary catastophe. Great characters and spot on narration by Jefferson Mays. Highly recommended if you like the character-driven action of McMaster Bujold or the political complexities of Weber's Honor Harrington series.

    "Fantastic hard science fiction"

    I read this book after watching the first season of The Expanse. The series covers roughly half of this book. The technology isn't gimmicky or improbable. The story is compelling and the characters unfold as intricate, complex people as the story develops.

    "Lavish space opera"

    This had the classic space opera feel while bringing modern science into the picture. Fully entertaining. Well written and executed.

    "Wow!"

    This book is an epic beginning to a saga. It starts off as purist sci-fi, with several protagonists and storylines. There's crime drama, space wars brewing, and even some light romance. These themes merge into medical horror and horrifying conspiracy. Such a broad, genre-busting storyline is the very basis for blockbuster movies in the past. Take your time with this one, folks, its worth it!
